My rating: <a href="http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/479546861">4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
I love dark humor when it is done right, which I'm sure is hard to do. But, Jamie Mason has nailed it in "Three Graves Full". <br />Dark, twisty, mysterious and suspenseful. I couldn't put it down. <br /><br />Jason Getty is a plain vanilla, ordinary guy most people probably would't pay much attention to. But, driven to the extreme of what he could bear, Jason commits murder. He buries the body on his property and then sweats out the consequences. After a while, Jason relaxes just a little and decides to have his garden and lawn cleaned up and landscaped. But, his worst fears are realized when a body is found by the workers. Only, this was not the guy Jason killed. Then another body is found..... still not Jason's handiwork. <br />When the cops are called, the investigation opens up a can of worms that no one could have imagined.<br />Leah and Boyd both have a connection to  the dead bodies found on Jason's property. Leah just wanted to visit the grave and finally feel  some closure. But, Boyd may have a secret to two himself.<br /><br />This was a really unique mystery suspense novel, with great characters and even better- a great dog as part of the cast.<br /><br />The pacing is perfect. Slow enough to build suspense, fast enough to keep you turning pages. Very cleverly plotted with realistic dialogue, and sharp wit.  Make no mistake, this is a dark mystery, but you won't be able to stop laughing at these flawed characters and the domino effect of their actions. <br />I highly recommend this novel.
